Stuhrling Original’s Winchester series has always featured skeletonized mechanical automatic timepieces, but the Winchester Spire takes it to another level. We’ve taken away the dial completely, and in its place, a bridge design movement that goes from 12 to 6; to top it off, the protected crown is set at 12 o’clock, making this watch pay homage to the timepieces of old. An incredible amount of work and detail has been placed into the movement alone. The scrollwork you see is all hand-engraved – a perfect complement to the blued steel screws and exposed jewels. The Winchester Spire completes its classic look with a stitched alligator embossed genuine leather strap.
Krysterna is proprietary to Stührling Original and refers to the crystals that are used in its timepieces. Krysterna stems from the eyewear industry and has more strength over a spread surface area than sapphire. Krysterna crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals and more shatter resistant than sapphire crystals.
The Winchester Family is part of the Classic Collection, timepieces inspired by the classic era of watchmaking. Members of this family feature skeletonized dials that boldly display the mechanical and automatic movements.
Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual Mechanical Movement
The hand-wound mechanical movement is perhaps the most classical of movements. It operates exclusively by the daily (or sometimes more often) winding of the crown to power the mainspring (the “heart” of the movement). Unlike its automatic mechanical counterpart, this type of movement does not feature a rotor. The energy source is the mainspring (a spring coiled into a tight spiral) which is wound manually by the wearer twisting the crown, usually in a clockwise direction. As time progresses, the spring begins to uncoil, releasing the energy needed to activate the various wheels and make the movement tick. Without routine winding of the crown, the hand-wound mechanical movement will eventually lose power. Thus, mechanical hand-wound movements usually require daily winding. A hand-wound movement requires greater care than almost all other types of movements because once the mainspring is fully wound, additional tension may cause it to break.
• Complications: Classic Two Hand Movement
• Dial: No Dial
• Hands: Alpha-Style Hands

However, take a GOOD look at the back of the watch above, specifically the watch band. I'd wanted to replace the black leather band with a brown band, but you cannot. Why? The spec says it is a 22mm watch band, and it is on the BOTTOM. on the top, there is a unique cutaway for the winder, and it's 18mm at the TOP! Simply put, you CAN'T replace this watch band, it's custom made for this watch!
This is not an everyday watch, because it's very smart to be hidden from the eyes of the people on the street. So I prefer to use it only on special occasions. The watch has a sleek and shiny finish smuy, a good weight. Its mechanism of winding operation requires once or twice a day. I've soaked in the rain sometimes, and when I got home I cleaned and stored without any problem.
The watch comes in a very beautiful, with its original warranty certificate
